6 Easy-To-Do Exercises That Could Help Reduce Arm Fat

That stubborn arm fat can be a bit annoying. Well, here's how to get rid of it without hitting the gym.

Every woman has a beautiful body. After all, there is no woman more gorgeous than one who feels and shows how confident she is in her own skin. Of course, there might be certain parts of your body you might not be completely pleased with and want to work on and that's okay. For some of you, you might feel like it's time to tone up your arms. But as determined as you may be to do it, conflicting schedules, running errands and taking care of your house can eat away at the time you might need to hit the gym.

However, what if there was a simple way to lose arm fat without ever hitting the gym and doing it in the comfort of your own home? Well, there is and with these six easy exercises, you may just find yourself dropping the arm flab in as less as five weeks.

1. Arm circles



 

How to do: Stand with your feet hip-width apart and keep your arms outstretched such that it's parallel to the floor. Slowly start rotating your arms clockwise and as you do so, start increasing the size of the circles. Try to keep your shoulders from moving upwards. Once you do 20 rotations, reverse the direction into counter-clockwise circles for another round. If you feel like it's too painful, take short breaks in between. Once you feel like you can take it up a notch, you can do it with lightweight dumbbells.

How to do: All you need for this exercise is either a bench or a chair. Placing your hands on the chair while your arms are behind your back, slowly lower your body down. Try your best to keep your elbows close to your sides and keep a straight back. Lower yourself while engaging your triceps, the upper half of your arm. Keep going until your elbows form a 90-degree angle and then raise your body back up. At first, go as low as you feel comfortable with and the more you do this exercise, you can increase the depth of your bend. 

3. Diamond pushups



 

How to do: In order to do this exercise, you'll need a mat. Kneeling on your hands and knees, keep your hands on the floor and join your thumbs and index fingers to form a diamond shape. Then, like you would in a normal push up, lower your body up and down while your fingers remain in this position. Start with a set of five before increasing the number as you get more used to the exercise.

How to do: In this pose, both your biceps and triceps will get a workout. Putting your hands together with your palms facing each other, place them above your head while they are still joined. Then in sets, slowly lower your joined hands to your chest before raising them above your head again. Do this about 30 times and keep increasing the number every time you do this exercise.

5. Jumping rope

How to do: Jumping rope actually engages your entire body. However, when it comes to your arms, the movement of the rope can help you shed that arm fat just as well.

6. Wall pushups



 

How to do: This exercise can work out your shoulders, triceps, and core. Standing in front of a wall, place your straight, outstretched arms against the wall at chin level and shoulder-width apart. Engage your core and lower your chest and head to push against the wall until you are close to it but not touching it. Keep your fingers pointed upwards and elbows downwards as you lean your body against the wall. Then slowly straighten your arms until you reach the original position. Keep doing this around 10 times and increase the number per your comfort.
